Special Issue Information
Wernicke’s encephalopathy and Korsakoff’s syndrome are neuropsychiatric syndromes that may occur in the context of malnutrition and thiamine deficiency, often—but not exclusively—in the context of alcohol use disorder. Despite the fact that thiamine supplementation in individuals at risk for developing Korsakoff’syndrome is available, there are still many patients that are newly diagnosed worldwide, alhough exact numbers are lacking. In addition, many people who have been diagnosed with Korsakoff’s syndrome still have to cope with the long-term consequences of this disorder that affect the everyday life of these individuals. In this Special Issue, we welcome authors to submit papers on Wernicke’s encephalopathy and/or Korsakoff’s syndrome. Topics may include—but are not limited to—their assessment and diagnostic work-up, their neuropsychiatric or cognitive sequelae, the neuropathology of these syndromes, somatic comorbidity, pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatments, quality of life, mental capacity, patient care and nursing, epidemiology, or neuroimaging research. Note that we welcome submissions on both alcoholic and nonalcoholic Wernicke’s encephalopathy and Korsakoff’s syndrome.
